A couple travels to Sweden to visit a rural hometown's fabled mid-summer festival. What begins as an idyllic retreat quickly devolves into an increasingly violent and bizarre competition at the hands of a pagan cult.
A darkness swirls at the center of a world-renowned dance company, one that will engulf the artistic director, an ambitious young dancer, and a grieving psychotherapist. Some will succumb to the nightmare. Others will finally wake up.
Chloë Grace Moretz,
Dani (Florence Pugh) and Christian (Jack Reynor) are a young American couple with a relationship on the brink of falling apart. But after a family tragedy keeps them together, a grieving Dani invites herself to join Christian and his friends on a trip to a once-in-a-lifetime midsummer festival in a remote Swedish village. What begins as a carefree summer holiday in a land of eternal sunlight takes a sinister turn when the insular villagers invite their guests to partake in festivities that render the pastoral paradise increasingly unnerving and viscerally disturbing.Written by

This isn't just a horror movie. It's a story on how to deal with grief. How things aren't always what they seem to be. How suffering is more tolerable when you're surrounded by others who try to hear you. It's a lot of things. It's even very funny in some parts. I love this film despite some flaws because it's very innovative. Many people took a risk in making it and it turned out great. (Caution: gore and nudity, and even those weren't repulsive like they usually are in many movies)
